BILLINGS — Children will test their awareness skills, investigate mysteries in nature and learn to leave no trace Monday, Aug. 4, during the next session of “Earth Stewardship for Young Folks” at Pictograph Cave State Park south of Billings.
The session runs from 9 to 11 a.m. each Monday through Aug. 25.
During the “Un-nature Trails” program Monday, participants will look for things that do not belong in this part of Montana and learn to figure out where things came from.
Each week storytelling and nature-based activities will focus on a new topic intended to help children develop a relationship with the Earth. Participants may attend any or all of the sessions.
The program is free, but space is limited. Reservations are encouraged by calling Pictograph Cave State Park at 245-0227.
Future programs include:
Aug. 11 – Archeology
Aug. 18 – Snakes, frogs and other reptiles
Aug. 25 – Storytelling – What’s your story in nature?
Pictograph Cave State Park is open every day this summer from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. There is no charge for Montana residents, but park fees may apply for non-residents.
